Mftrnbir of the Audit 

b-ur*au of Circulation 




aggie flicks seem to be 
the rage at the moment, 

Uand Entertain merit Inter- 
national have jumped on 
the bandwagon by sign- 
ing All Dogs Go To Heaven; the 
latest cartoon film by Don Space 
Ace 1 Bluth. 



Er& previous Bluth licences 
have been for graphically superb 
but simplistic coin-ops. but this 
time round they've gone out of 
their way for the rights to this 
lilm. 

Whether Ail Dogs Go To 
Heaven will show more bias to- 



wards payability or not remains 
to be seen, One things for sure 
though, if the graphics and sound 
are up to standards of the pre- 
vious Bluth licences, it may well 
be worth buying just as a com- 
puterised video. 



PALACE TO GO FOR GOLD 



The first game to be pub- 
lisfted as a result of the 
deal between Palace and 
French-based Silmarils 
will be a western game 
set in the Colorado gold rush. 

Colorado will contain all the 
essential elements: stage coach 
fights, showdowns and Indian 
attacks. Palace sotted . Richard 
Henely, claims: 'We're excited by 
this deal Silmarils have had their 
problems in the past, but I'm 
confident that we'll now be creat- 
ing a very good catalogue of 
products'. 

And the meantime, Palace have 
announced two further new titles: 
Voodoo Nightmare and Spider, 
which, we're told, will be like 
James Bond'. 




ANTENNAE AGAIN 




How about this for a cheap 
sequel to a fl movie? Ant 
Heads is an expansion 
disk for it Came From 
The Desert, containing 
different scenery, people different 
places, and different events. 

Set five years after the original 
giant ant invasion, the gargantuan 
insects are making a comeback. 
Then events take a turn for the 
worse. - 

Ant Heads will be available at 
the end of February priced at 
£14.99. And you'll need an ori- 
ginal copy of the game to get it 
working. 




VIRGIN 
ALICE 



Rumours are that the first 
Magnetic Scrolls adven- 
ture for Virgin Mastertm- 
nic will be none other 
than the licence of Lewis 
Carroll's Victorian fantasy novel 
'Alice's Adventures in Wonder- 
land . 

The licence for the book is 
certainly on the market, and 
although Virgin were unable to 
comment about their Magnetic 



Scrolls debut, we've been reliably 
informed that they've snapped up 
the rights. 

Its known that Magnetic 
Scrolls, fronted by Anita Sinclair, 
are currently working on a new- 
style and in -depth graphics-only 
adventure, and if their game turns 
out lo be Alice in Wonderland it 
should provide more than enough 
inspiration for an absorbing and 
exerting game.

OCEAN SHOW 
RESISTANCE 



Ocean have just announ- 
ced the signing of Mid- 
night Resisting the 
Data East coin-op which 
scored a healthy eighty 
percent in a recent CU write up. 
Resembling Gryzor MR fea^ 
tures lots of horizontal and vertic- 
al scrolling levels, big guns, a 



kidnapped family and some guys 
which are just plumb nasty. 

Special FX (famous for The 
Untouchables and ffetf Heaf} are 
doing the programming, and tell 
us that the game will be finished 
around about late April. A quick 
off the mark conversion if ever 
we've heard one

One citizen has been chosen 
to compete in the fastest, 
meanest and deadliest con- 
test of all. 

P*reiW5i* p Matrix Maraud- 
ers is played on nine levels of 
difficulty, alternatively made 
up of hexagon and diamond 
shapes built up or a lattice 
work of equilateral triangles. 



At the triangular point of 
each grid are supersensor 
f illed generators which allow 
the fighter to fly and change 
direction. And that aside, it's 
one of those 'Rollerbafl' or 
'Running Man' scenarios — 
as you fight to the death in 
the grand finale of the 3 1 5th 
Inter-Galactic Games. 




Rainbow Arts Latest lands 
you the role of an interstellar 
party animal with one hell of 
a hangover and a mission to 
retrieve some top secret 
data from the galaxy's rub- 
bish heap. 
Naturally, you have to con- 



688 

ATTACK 

SUB 



lie Arts are going to 
send you down under the 
briney tor a spot of strategy 
and some torpedo practise. 

A commander of one of 
two submarines, your main 
aim in life is to seek out 
surface ships and take pot 
shots at them, 688 Attack 
Sub will have a control room 



tend with all of the monsters 
and pests which thrive on the 
heap. Your mission, should 
you decide to accept it is to 
thwart their attempts at sym- 
biosis and get them — before 
they get you. 







in which no doubt you'll be 
able to play the tyrant, and 
say things like "up peri 
scope 1 , fasten the hatches' 
and 'fire torpedo one r . 




riV^ 



ur is one of those 
hush projects which prom- 
ises elementary gameplay 
and serious addictiveness. 
It's a rarity, too, in that Max 
the coin-op and Max on the 
Amiga are being developed 
simultaneously. 

The arcade version made 
its debut at the recent ATE 
show and it was clear from 
its simplicity why both 
Tengen and Atari have been 
frightened of piracy. 

Variously coloured tiles 
roll down a conveyor belt to 
be captured on your paddle* 
You can rebound tiles, stack 
them to a maximum of five 
high on your paddle, or drop 
them into containers- The 
aim? To get three colours in 
a row, horizontally, vertically 
or diagonally. And doesn't 
that sound easy? Perhaps 
when you play it you'll find 
that it's not i . i 



Astate, which has been high- 
ly acclaimed over there in its 
native France, will soon be 
thrilling wannabe archeolog- 
ists over here in the UK. 

In this game you take the 
role of the ologist who, 
equipped with only a metal 
detector, drill and a pick-axe, 
has to find five pieces of the 
fancy-named Statue of 
Ttieomorphe. 

Astate, we are told, Is a 
textless and visually ex- 
quisite adventure. It's pub- 
lished by New Deal Produc- 
tions and will be distributed 
in Britain by burgeoning The 
Software Business Ltd,

Go from training camp to

you really want to know? You 
have to, of course — grandpa

CD AMIGA 
FOR XMAS 



Rumours about Commod- 
ore's plans for their new 
CD ROM Amiga are cur- 
rently flying thick and fast 
hut CL) can bring you some 
of the more reliable ones. 

CD Amiga, it seems, will be 
retailing around the E499 mark 
and will be a modified version of 
the current A500 model but with 
one meg of memory. One of the 
major selling points of CD Amiga 
is that in addition to being a 
games machine it will double up 
as music system, the drive being 
capable of accepting normal au- 
dio disks, giving you a chance 



switch off !t Came From The 
Desert for a moment and slot in 
Black Box r Happy Mondays, or 
even a Konami game music selec- 
tion. Although essentially a multi- 
media package, the new Amiga 
can't be used for video disks. 

Developed in Japan, the machi- 
ne will reach development houses 
here in the UK and elsewhere in 
Europe around Easter, Britons 
should be treated to their first 
glimpse of this Amiga by mid- 
summer and production models 
will be coming off-line in Septem- 
ber — just in time for the festive 
sales. 



Characteristically , software 
houses are keeping mum about 
their development plans for the 
format, but Ocean. Psygnosis. 
Titus and Cinemaware are already 
working on projects 

Finally, estimates for the num- 
ber of joystick ports vary between 
two and four, but it seems a 
strong possibility that an infra red 
joystick, which will be along the 
lines of a TV wand, will be 
incorporated. In essence, the new 
machine will be like a CDI unit 
with an Amiga instead of a CPU, 
offering the possiblity of a new 
generation of gaming. 



SOFTCOS MAY 
MAKE MOVIES 



How long will it be before soft- 
ware houses broaden their 
range by going into movies? 
Sounds far fetched? It's already 
happening. 

First to have announced de- 
tails are Entertainment Interna- 
tional, who as a prelude to 




making their own films, will be 
repackaging and distributing 
videos for an American produc- 
tion company. 

Meanwhile, much bigger 
software houses could soon get 
involved A.R,C. t a movie pro- 
duction unit based at Pinewood 
studios recently worked with 
Ocean for the NigfttbreetS li- 
cence, and they are now be- 
lieved to be 'co-operating with a 
major software house* to pro- 
duce low budget, fantasy, sell- 
through videos. Ocean hava de- 
nied that they are involved. 
Nevertheless, Chris Byron f 
A.R.C/S Managing Director, 
has confirmed that discussions 
for joint ventures have taken 
place between A.R.C, and un- 
named high flying softeos.

ELVIRA 
MISTRESS 
OF DARKNESS 

Screen shots have at last 
come our wa y , forte! ling Hor- 
rorsoft's tale of vixen gore. 

Anybody who watched 
BBC 2 T s 'Heavy Hetal 
Heaven" last Christmas will 
have art idea of Miss Mi 
tress of the Dark's ample 
charms and talents- Hopeful- 
ly! there won't be too long m 
wait before the game crawls 
nut of some dark and dingy 
catacomb. We'll keep you 
posted on any further sight- 
ing*. 






There are hints of 'Blade 
Runner', perhaps, as you 
step into a futuristic city in 
this game. As a bounty hun- 
ter, you have to nip in be- 
tween buildings and hunt out 
your spoils. 

The game features digi- 
tised pictures of all your 
targets, and, so we're told, 
they'll possess a degree of 
artificial intelligence just to 
liven things up even further. 

Programmed by Ian Dow- 
nend and Paul Carruthers, of 
Archipelagos tame, with help 
from Kevin Bulmer [Ram- 
roo*s artist) p Resolution 101 
will be out soon.

This will be the first of a 
stream of yet-to-be disclo- 
sed licences from Enigma

hind Gilbert, Due for a mid- 
March release , DOIT will in-

Earth from the evil clutches 
of Ming and his forces.

Motorbike sims of course 

are nothing new, but this one 
from Gremlin has a two- 
player option which allows a 
partner to control the side- 
car. 

It also sports a rather nifty 
track editor which allows you 
to shape the course, insert 
hi II s, bends, tunnels and road 
signs. If you choose you can 
make the game realty very 
heavy'. 

Combo Racer is scheduled 
for Easter release, We've 
seen the earty version of the 
game. It moves smoothly 
and at breakneck speed.

NINJA

Back in the newsroom we're 
wondering when people are 
going to run out of Ninja 
titles, how many more can 
there be? Well here's one for 
starters . - - 

Activision's Ninja Spirit, li- 
cenced from lrem t contains 
all the Ninja laves: swords, 
deaths tars, wolves, war- 



lock* ami Kitemen(?). It's 
seven levels will include rock 
climbing, boulder dodging, 
marshes and forest*. 
Sounds to us like a bit of 
ninja nature ramble, 

Ninja Spirit should be s hur- 
ikening its way to you for a 
March release.

■ : » from an / ^mpany signed to AcfMsioaVivid Image Mike 
sndon dodges the punches 



"here can be few new 

j production teams with 
' the pedigree of Vivid Im- 
age The company was 
formed last September by 
three of the country's mast 
sought after programmers, 
Mev Dink Hugh Riley and 
John TwkJdy. Between fhem 
they have been responsible 
for rnutti format versions of 
such elasstes as Lost Ninja 
and Maori Warriors. 



Since establishing Vivid 
Image they've been slaving 
over a futuristic gome called 
Hamm&rfist. The setting for 
the game is a society where 
powerful holograms gener- 
ated by a corporation 
known as Metro- Holographs 
(o name culled directty from 
Gibson "s 'Neuromancer ') 
hold power However two 
holograms are mistakenly 
fused together and set out in 



an attempt to destroy the 

generator and separate 

themselves. 

The result is two characters 
you can switch between. 
Metalisis. a high kicking 
female who flips about the 
screen, and Hammerfist. a 
powerful male character 
with a cybernetic arm which 
con incorporate various 
weapons including a devas^ 
toting piston fist

animation for that and a lot 
of work!"", said Twiddy who 
had to write several custo- 
mised utilities including on 
animation editor for the 
game. 

Hamm&rfist is composed 
of 64 screens which are 
accessed in two loads. The 
game beg iris in the first city, 
and you have to make your 
way through to the second 
city via an underwater sec- 
tion and caves Each screen 
Is a puzzle in itself and Vivid 
Image have placed a parti- 
cularly high premium on 
points scoring — often 
achieved by going round 
and wrecking rooms com- 
pletely! 

Surprisingly the Amiga 
programmer for the game is 
something of an unknown,

Incentive ar© moving 
fantasy games away from 
the world of Roger Dean 
into one thaf s composed 
of cubes, Steve James 
finds out whaFs 
happening. 

Earty Freescape gomes 
put the player smack 
bong in the middle of 
an abstract world of pyramid 
shapes and cubes. With fa 
ing camera's eye J pers- 
pective, the likes of Driller 
injected a new realism into 
software. 

And now, after four years 
commitment to 3D graphics r 
developers Incentive claim 
to have pushed this realism a 
step or two further — and the 
resuft te CosttB Master, a 
medieval game with the 
familiar polygons but with 
unexpected detail. The 
obtongs are present but so 
are flags, goblets, the odd 
portcullis and a baf s wing or 
two ... 

Castie Mo$t&r has a Mid- 
dle Ages fantasy theme, if s 
premise is hardly startling — 
you go in search of a kidnap 
victim — but the way your 
character sees his move- 
ments is. When he stands he 
sees everything at head 
height; when he crawls 
under the banqueting table 
in search of an object his 
perspective is that of a small 
hunched man,

plays its pari — witness the 
spirit level gauge (work the 
pun out for yourself) and the 
inventive rock travel potion 
(throw a large stone through 
a window and remaferialise 
inside). 

Cosfte Master will be the 
first joint venture between 
incentive and Domark. 
Although the game design 
was lan's he's gathered a 
group of coltaborators which 
include Paul Gregory and 
Sean Ellis on codes, Mike 
Salmon on level designs and 
Chris Andrews on game 
editing, Les Ellinghom has 
been employed to design 
the intra sequence and free- 
lance journalist, Mel 
Croucher. to come up with 
riddles r dues and some of 
the storyline.

negotiate and each one has 
taken between three and 
four hours to create; then

All of the designs have 
been transferred from paper 
to screen using a custom 
built editor. Numerous scroll- 
ing routines were then in- 
carporafed — and these will 
include U-turns, which will be 
activated by a key stroke or 
pressing a mouse/joystick 
button, 

Castfe MastBr may be the 
first example of this kind of 
game to use Freescape but 
it seems unlikely to be the

ATOMIC 
ROBOKID 

Spring time will see the release of the conversion of this wild "n" tricky shoot "em up. 
Steve James spoke to the developers . . . 



Among last yeai's crop 
of coin-ops, few could 
hold a candle to Ato- 
mic Robokid in combining 
the Japanese love of cute- 
ness with one-hundred per- 
cent shoot "em up action. 
Now, on behalf of Acffivision, 
programmer Jef Gamon is 
working helf-far-leather to 
com© up wffh the 'arcade 
perfect" conversion. 

Gamon worked on Amiga 
Altered Beast, Sky Fox 2 and 
6-bit LastNin/Q, When you've 
this much onscreen at once 
you've got to have your wits 
about you, he claimed. This 
is the first arcade btost game 
I've done, previous^ if s been 
beat 'em ups. There are two 
types of programmer — the 
first are creative, the second 



are good at copying. Inn 

definitely in the second 
group, but fhaf s OK — Ato- 
mic Robokid wilt really be as 
good os damn when ft com- 
es to arcade perfection.' 

With o few updates 
added, the sprite logic for 
the game has been taken 
from Altered Beast. Once 
that was in place the prog- 
ramme for logic was instal- 
led, and this time, of course. 
that had to be original. Each 
level was systematically 
approached, while Mark 
Jones (Altered Beast, R-Type) 
worked on the graphics. 
There are twenty levels in 
total and each screen in 
effect will be a separate 
J wip©' introducing a new set 
Of sprites with bizzare sound- 



ing names like Mini Morbic, 
R5> Metal Red Taoo and 
Super Elephant. Tsutomo 



Fubsowo and Tokushisa Tad- 
ma seemingly crammed ev- 
ery conceivable backdrop 
into the UPL coin-op — from 
Dallesque plants and seas- 
capes through semi organic 
scrapyards to medieval-style 
fortress interior?. It's the Job of 
Mark Jones and Jef Gamon 
to keep the conversion true 
to the spirit of the origlna L but 
they'll be anglicising some of 
the more oriental onscreen 
commands. 

Amiga Atomic Robokid will 
be a two-disk release, but 
with so much oction 
onscreea even with com- 
pression, it's possible that 
one of two tevels will have to 
be scrapped. Every fifth fevel 
youll have to destroy one of 
the many metallic be- 
tenfacled monsters which 
practical^ take up most of 
the screen, 

Mecano Associates com- 
posed the soundtrack for 
arcade Atomic Robotdd. It 









was offbeat to soy the least, 
sounding as if It had been 
written by a Hammond 
organist who ploys ten-fc>a- 
dozen riffs set to a heartbeat. 
But whether or not this will 
now be sampled, or be re- 
composed instead, hasn't 
yet been decided. 

The game will be offering 
standard weapons, power- 
ups, large, beam disintegra- 
tors at 45 degree movement 
and five-way fire, none of 
which will in themselves be 
anything other than stan- 
dard. Collectively, however,

all-out freneticism. Could

The use of CD ROM as a mass means of 
interpreting data is about to give the software 
industry the medium it has needed for so long. 
Mike Pattenden talks to some people 
preparing to exploit a new gaming future 
whilst Steve James unearths creative talents 
already using the Amiga to create art. 



Cinemaware s Wings will 0e scripted hy Ncfty> W n 



fith the first decade ol 
home computing firmly 
behind lis a new wave 
of machines and ideas is set lo 
revolutionise (he Nineties. The 
key factor to all this is the 
burgeoning mulli media world 
outside the relatively cosy 
backwater of software 
production 

With music, film, publishing 
and computing crossing over all 
the more readily a number of 
people are networking to bring 
them much closer still. 

Prog rammers have realised 
that even the level of power 
ottered to I hem by their current 
tools is enough lo allow them to 
take on bigger concepts and 
draw on wider influences- Now 
graphics can actually take on 
the look of artwork, sound can 
be used to create a narrative 
and a real plot must be an 
integral pari of the game which 
has any pretence of depth 

I he overwhelming impetus 
for a new approach to 
games design has been coming 
from the US. The success of 
Cmemaware games has done 
more to make the idea of 
interactive movies a realily than 
any other company, so much 
so. that its already spawning 
imitators left right and centre. 

The concepi behind the 
company dates back five years 
when they began developing a 
bigger kind of game to cope wilh 
the mass technological 
advances around the corner. 
"We set out to creale a more 
powerful kind of experience," 
sums up Bob Jacob, 
Cmemaware s President. 

To this end Cinemaware 
games are not just story boarded 
but scripted. Given their localion 
on the West Coasl close to the 
centre ottfte movie wo rid such a 
decision isn't as extreme as it 
sounds. The most recent 



example of this was ft Came 
From The Desert, whilst they re 
currently cooperating on Wings, 
aWWI flight Simula! ion based 
on the old Thirties film of that 
name Future plans also include 
tackling a western. 

Since the average 
Cinemaware products attempts 
to provide a broader spectrum 
of entertainment Jacob goes to 
people who specialise rather 
than asking one or two people, a 
programmer or an artist say, to 
provide everything. "We need to 
provide good dialogue in our 
games and you can"! expect 
programmers to give you that, 
so we ask experts T says Jacob 

Specialisation is the direction 
the industry must take and 
this view is supported by Bill 
Williams who is, ironicaHy, the 
one man band behind Kntghts 
Of The Crystaliion. "II seems to 
me we have a lack of respect of 
storytellers — a plot is more 
than a sequence of events and 
here many computer games 
struggle wilh their limitaiions. 
You can have interaction and 
fifty different endings, bu I are 
any of them any good?" 

To this end he sees an urgeni 
need to build a human quality 
into his games, lo add some 
emotion — a difficult task in 
such an environment. 'We must 
attract more people from 
outside this business — writers, 
painters, We're creative people 
but we're nervous about being 
called artists." Williams feels 
that games designers need to 
aim higher — "although I don' I 
think I deserve ihe title of artist 
applied to me yet. I'm only at Ihe 
stage of being a craftsman ." 

Nevertheless this hasn't 
stopped him blending in poetry 
with the weird sounds and 
storyline of Knights,, which is 
being billed as a 'culture 
simulator" a term which doesn't 



really do justice lo the 
revolutionary ideas in this game. 

The greatest boost to 
improving games design 
beyond its current confines 
comes from technological 
innovation, specially CD! — 
laser disk which can store words 
and pictures on CD and aHow 
the operator lo interact wilh 
them. Such systems already 
exisl for computers and 
consoles in Japan like the PC 
Engine and the FM Towns, but 
with news of a system lor the 
Amiga due for launch in Ihe US 
later this year people are 
already talking of inter action on 
a scale they were only dreaming 
of twelve months ago, and for a 
mass audience. "We've been 
researching tor years mlo how 
to provide a more realistic 
experience which delivers on 
sound and vision/' agrees 
Eleclromc Arts Development 
Manager in the States, Stuart 
Bonn. 

Now they've got one and 
people are already 
preparing lo exploit it. 
Cinemaware are currently about 
lo launch a version of It Came 
From The Desert on CD lor the 
PC Engine with speech instead 
of lexl and Bob Jacob is already 
talking of designing a game 
based on using digilised actors 
and dialogue using the kirxl ot 
capacity CD can offer 

Bill Williams, who was 
responsible for for the sound on 
many of Cinemaware s greatest 
successes before leaving to 
develop his own projecis agrees 
"we're on the edge of being able 
to deliver what people want to 
hear."' He slresses sound as the 
most overriding area in need of 
attention, even above graphics. 
"People are very sophisticated 
about sound, they hear quality 
around them all the time/' 

The idea of cinematic scores 



*-£ 



theye»2O00 



vHolIywowTten; 



and soundtrack?; being added to 
games is now no longer a 
fantasy. This is, in a crude way, 
what the programmers of Eitte 
or TOFT were trying to do by 
providing short classical tunes 
like 'The Blue Danube' during 
docking sequences inspired by 
films like '2001'. 

Rill Williams concurs with l his 
eventuality. "When 
Cmema ware were preparing to 
demo Defender Of The Crown 
on CO more than a year ago 
[something of a first] Jim Conno 
their sound programmer went 
off and recorded a soundtrack 
with a full orchestra. II was 
beautiful but we didn't have the 
technology to Iranslate It into the 
game, Now we can do ft." 

Over at EA s US 
headquarters Britain's best 
known sound programmer Rob 
Hubbard has spent three years 
researching the future of sound 
■n games and he can now see 
this work coming lo fruition. "I'm 
hopeful for major strides in this 
direction although I think the tirsl 
steps towards it will come 
through CD ROM video 
machines because of the 
development costs involved ." 

The amounl of capital that's 
likely to be required in future 
projects oMhis scale is 
undoubtedly larger than 
anything being spent currenily, 
"The budget needs to gel 
better/ says Williams. 

This is where the big boys 
come in. The money needed to 
finance development at this 
stage only exists in the biggest 
corporations. Multi media giants 
have the divergence of skills 
and the money to invest >n 
projects in the knowledge they 
will be best placed to exploit 
them when they are realised. 
This was the thinking behind the 
creation of Warner New Media 
under the aegis of Stan 
Corny an, a senior figure m the 
parent company Warner Bros 
for over twenty years. 

1 1 was Corny an in fact who was 
I directly responsible tor 
promoting CD ROM by bringing 
together the twin elecironic 
expertise of Sony and Phillips, 

Warners existence as a 
mediator is their major asset 
Cornyan reckons "We re not 
linked lo any specific hardware 
companies, our independence 
altows us to exploit any new 
developments. 

Warner New Media can add 
to this its own powerful interests 
in film. TV, cable and publishing. 
Surprisingly though the tirsl fruit 
of their involvement in this 
direction comes not from their 
him concerns, but from their 
publishing wing, specifically DC 
comics which has jusl published 
a new Batman graphic novel 
"Digital 1 Justice". 



What makes Digital Justice 1 
so suitable for translation is that 

it was wholly compuler 
generated There's nothing 
original about that per se. First 
Comics' Shatter' was produced 
that way some two years ago 
What is unique about Digital 
Justice' is I hat its data can now 
be reassembled on CD since it 
is all stored digitally. 

Pepe Moreno the novel's 
creator and the brain at the 
centre of this project is already 
turning other people s fantasies 
and concepts an to reality . "I 
wanted to make all the ideas 
we've been reading about for 
some time happen." he 
explains. The comic is launched 
laler this month and the CD 
version is currently being 
prepared for release on the Mac 
before the end of the year. 
Involvement wilh the computer 
version will be more linear lhan 
interactive with the viewer 
watching Ihe story untold yet 
having complete video style 
control Over t : vr?n»:s C'us nav hq 
the options to puM up windows 
by clicking on screen to display 
information on characters and 
locations. Graphically thu CD 
ROM version will offer full 
animation in places, whilst 
building will be three 
dimensional allowing viewing 
from any angle. 

■ gain though, Ihe real impact 
t 10I ' Digital J usl ice ' will be 
delivered by the sound potential 
of the medium. Moreno 
envisages a soundtrack with 
original and pre-recorded 
sections with anisis as diverse 
as Prince and The Doors 
coming to mmd. Clearly when 
he says that he's thinking off ihe 
top of his head, but Warner has 
the clout with its cross media 
interests to deliver whilst their 
own catalogue is there for 
selection il artists agree. What is 
clear ts that technology makes 
the inclusion of m press ive 
sound a foregone conclusion. 

For Pepe this is only a 
beginning "All comics will 

be read like this by the year 
2000 " but he also recognises 
the kick this will give everyone 
else. If a GDI version of Ihe 
novel appears as quickly after 
the CD ROM version (ie, a 
totally interactive one), and that 
seems more than likely, then 
everyone else will be left trailing 
in his wake faced with a demand 
for more work of this scope. 

So far the genesis of many of 
these ideas is coming solely 
from the US and the Far East 
but once they arrive you can be 
sure that Bob Jacob s ultimaie 
vision of "wholly generated 3D 
holographic realities" won't be 
far behind them They can't 
come soon enough.

ART FOR SCARFS SAKE 

Of course, multi-media aren't just the province of games publishers. 
The potential for using computers In video, film, are fine and graphic 
design has long been recognised 



n 1987 when Corn mod ore 
commissioned Andy Warhol 
to do an Amiga painting of 
rock star Deborah Harry they 
did more than fusi demonstrate 
the machine s ability for 
outstanding visuals, A growing 
minority of artists have seized 
upon 1 ©-bit computing to extend 
and enhance their work. 

And once again much ot this 
has happened m the West 
Coast of America. But the 
influences in this case owe less 
to Hollywood and more to the 
tradition of counter-cull ure 
which emerged in The Sixties 
and which still exists in the 
California of today. The people 
involved have ot>e view in 
common: the computer is a tool 
which takes the artistic 
community out of the pockets of 
corporate finance and back into 
the homes of the artisan class. 
Paintings, video and 
performance art are all being 
produced with the help of the 
Amiga, and There's even an 
underground journal which 
supplies arts & community news 
to this network of users, and 
which is produced using Amiga 
lonte. Clip art, colour scan: 
il lustrations, plus a choic 
over one -hundred -a nd-fi 1 . 11 
alphabets. Once the pages 
have been downloaded into a 
Lmotron. the magazine is 
produced and sold just like any 
other. 



One of the most innovative 
users has been theatre 
producer Judy Navas. who has 



used the Amiga to push the 
interactivity in live stage 
performance to a hitherto 
unheard exteni Imagines 
performance in which actors 
and actresses could control and 
distort the backdrops, summon 
up a special effect then play with 
it lo suit the mood of the 
audience, or simply play a 
melody on Ihe strings of a harp 
which is composed of Jight. 
Thanks to a range of Amiga 
software that's exactly what s 
been happening. 

I think many artists are 

computer phobic." explained 
Judy, "but I've always been 
interested in what I'd term real 
Mime processing. I was getting 
frustrated with the confines of 
traditional set design, but now, 
thanks to computing. ) can make 
Shese images live, and that's 
opened up endless 
possibilities". 

Digitised flashbacks and 
exotic animation give Navas' 

work a dream-like feel. Her 
current prod uci ion. a dance 
adaptation of T.S. Elliot's The 
Love Song oU. Alfred Prufn" 
includes digitised stills of 
surrealist Magntte. while here '■ 
version of The Tempest' relied 
on nineteenth century etchings 
In both cases pictures have 
been convened using Digiview. 
then enlarged, cut out. 
composed, and. finally, 
colounsed using Digi paint. 
Explained Judy: -In The 
Tempest" I wanted things to

asketbali is big 

— almost as big 
as Oliver North 

— in the land of 
apple pie. Many 

reserved Britons fail 1 to see the 
attraction of a dozen men, each in 
excess of six foot in height, bounc- 
ing bails through nets and squeak- 
ing their Adidas trainers, but that's 
their loss. The rules are quite 
simple. Five players, no physical 
contact, no holding the ball for 
more than three seconds and all 



on a court no bigger than a hun- 
dred feet long. 

Naturally. Cinemaware 's adap- 
tion is up to their usual, highly 
polished standard, and it owes 
more than a little to TV Sports 
Football. The intro sequence fea- 
tures a panning camera shoi 
showing the crowded arena, fol- 
lowed by a message from the 
program's sponsors, then the 
ever-smiling front man,, prattles on 
about the features of the match 
and its grand finale. 



Next off its time to arrange your 
team. Pick five players, ten them 
who they've got to mark and then 
you're away. The action starts 
with a tipoff P in which the referee 
throws the hall into the air while 
the players try to gain possession. 

From there onwards the game 
is divided into four sections; de- 
fense, attack, rnidfield and the 
subs bench. In the defence sec- 
tion you have to try -to pick off the 
passes of the opposing teams in 
addition to blocking their shots. 





close. Getting really close to the 
basket allows you to attempt a 
slam dunk. This involves the play- 
er physically placing the ball in the 
basket. It will not give you extra 
points, but it does look good all the 
same. 

Sadly TV Sports Basketball 
lacks interaction, there is less to 
do than in TV Sports FootbaM- 
Although the action is fast, a loi of 
the time you end up getting left 
behind. Don't lei lhat put you off 
though, this game has a lot to offer 
and it's good fun to play. 

Definitely the best of the few 
basketball sims available,

the PR people 
claim. Well in not sure about 
that, but what I do know is that it's 
one of the most impressively de- 
signed Amiga games I've seen. 

The opening sequence details 
the death millions of years ago of 
a gigantic creature, the Orodrid. 
Now, four thousand years in the 



future, its tones have been hol- 
lowed out to form a gigantic city, 
which is controlled by several 
large families. 

As the head of erne of these 
families it's your ultimate goal to 
find a Crystallion egg and then 
hatch it out. This can only be 
completed by successfully man- 
aging you* family, and overcoming 
several difficult tasks that lie in 
your way. 

The Crystallion egg is contained 



within the bottom of the Tsimit, the 
skuli of the Orodrid. Inside the 
lower half of the skull is a maze of 
twisting passages, home to some 
rather vicious creatures, and rest- 
ing place of the Mystical crystals. 
These crystals can be used 1o 
charge up your armour, and when 
you've collected enough allow you 
to pass onto the next level

Bill Williams. KTG's program-

where he was responsible for 
such gems as Rocket Ranger 
and Lords Of Tho Rising Sun 
until the programming 
equivalent of writers block tat 
in. That lasted until ha carna 
across the inventive sci fi 
novel 'Always Coming Home', 
by Uraual K La Guin, concern- 
ing the growth of civilisation 
which gave him the idea to 
design a culture simulator ■ 
unique game that requ ires the 
player to identify with the 
cultural ideas in a game. 

"I wanted to Ct«*t* i SClOrt-

culture. This is., of course, a 
tall order for a computer 
game. It's along journey to a

Crystallion egg. To do this you 
need to become proficient in the 
use oi the Deketa cards. Self 
dealing, these cards contain 
mysterious Swirling patterns and 
constantly reshuffle themselves 
as you try to match the pairs. An 
old and simple game, but with

their puzzies gives you the power

you have to beat the computer at 
Bosu, which is a Strang & game 
involving marbles, a wooden 
board and lota of planning. The 
objective Is to capture as many 
intersections on the board as 
possible — it's a game within* a 
game. Failing to beat me compu- 
ter means you get sent back to the 
beginning. However you do get 
three attempts, and there's a tutor 
mode. 

Another of the tasks is the 
Prode. In this you need to place 
pairs of crystals in the Proda 
room, which causes them to pro- 
duce light beams, These beams 
need to connect with the manic 
Cripids (tube-like creatures), who 
amplify the beams so they 
recharge your suit of armour. 

But the most complex part of 
the game is the marketplace, or 
Haresh Here you set the family 
budgets, buy 'ood. doths, books 
and other materials essential for 
the family's survival You must 
also set a price on your family's

produce, being careful not to 
undercut or overcharge other 

families. If you feel really daring, 
money can be invested in expedi- 
tions to find other communities. 
Success in this means new trade 
routes and a cash bonus lor the 



tion. 

Inside the Tslmit the passages 
twist In every direction, with some 
of the screens in almost complete 
darkness. Apart from your protec- 
tive suit you're also armed with 
deadly plasma bolts. Providing 
you've been successful in the 
Dekela the Crystallion appears 
from time to time showing you 
which path to take. 

I don't think a game has made 
such an impression on me before. 
The graphics and the Ideas be- 
hind them are really amazing, A 
combination of digitised back- 
drops* and carefully drawn hi- res 
pictures have to be seen moving 
to be appreciated. Musically 
KQTG is something else, Prog- 
rammer Bill Williams (ex- 
Cinimawarel has done nothing 
short of creating a new music style 
that's so weird, distinctive and 
well-produced thai the game 
seems to draw most ol its tee I 
from it. Its so good in fact thai US 
Gold have included it on an audio 
cassette in the packaging, 

Knights Of The Cr/stallion is an 
experience in itself. A not to be 
missed game which was deigned 
jusl for the Amiga, and gives more

more aliens appear. Even though 
they're unarmed they'll reduce 
your energy jusl by touching a 
droid. 

It's easy to locale the recharge

the droids isn't so simple. You can 
only direct one droid at a time, 30 
should two be attached you're 
really in trouble.

work out the best way to defeat

comes in when you write short

The space vessel in question is 
divided up into four distinct level s n

fi a nutshell. P*pe 
Mania has bad 
graphics, bad 
sound and hard- 
ly any variation 
in its very simple gamepfay — yel 
I love HI Pipe Mania works along 
the same theory thai keeps Pao 
man and Space invaders popular, 
A game doesn't have to have 
Galaxy Force g raphes and an 
Aftarbumer soundtrack to be fun 
to play and adtficlive. 

Aesi helically, Pipa Mania has 
very liltle to offer. The game is 
based around a grid, the main 
graphics being composed from 
Ihe dozen or so different pieces of 
pipe thai are placed within the 
squares on the grid. 

The idea behind the game is 
simple. You. the plumber, within 
the set lime limit, have to rig up a 
pipe lo a particular length. Simple, 
is it not? 

The only real problem is that 
you cam only take the bit of piping 
ai the botiom of your bag, and 
that's rarely the one you want. 
What you then do with that piece 
is your own business. You can lay 
It down elsewhere and try and link 
it up to something, or just drop it 



MANIA 



Technically inere isn't much of a 
game In there; but I can see this 
easily outlasting many of the 
Flashiest arcade conversions. It's 
just so addictive you won't have 
time to catch your breath. 

Tony Dillon 




Pfumbs the depths graphically, tut Pipe Mania has brilliant gamaptay. 



Price: £24. 



and pick up the next piece. This 

second method isn't advised: it 
costs valuable points to buy bits of 
piping, so it's best to have a pretty 

good idea in your head as to how 
the pipe will run, 
When the painfully short time 



limit runs out and you don't have 

enough bits ol pipe laid down Ihe 
water starts to flow, very very 
slowly. Vou can suit lay down pipe, 
but don't lake too long over it as 
the water will speed up quickly. 
And I hat's about ihe size of it.

DRAGONS 



Ohould you go 
down to the 
woods today 
you're liable to 
be incinerated by 
a dragon owned by a Dark Lord 
who's out to find (he secret of 
immortality. And these are ruth- 
less wicked lords, If they're not 
spending their time breeding dra- 
gons or burning down chunks of 
forest, they're irying to grve the 
townsfolk boils. 

The secret of immortally is situ- 
ated at the top of the mountain in 
the centre of the game map, and 
it's only accessible with a magic 



talisman. This in turn is divided up 
into three pieces and secreted 
around the land. 

Rather than play a do-gooder 
you take the pari of one of the 
oppressive lords. There's no dif- 
ference beiween them, bar 
physical features and castles; so 
there's no advantage in playing 
any particular one. With this in 
mrnd I was transformed into six- 
and-a-half foot of green scaly 
flesh, the proud owner of a castle 
overlooking a sulphurous desert. 

Setting aboul my first day of 
business as a bad guy , with the 
aid of my pet lizard I successfully 



wiped out a third of the population 
of Ihe village of Xain (a small, 
Croydonish backwater which de- 
served no better). Fof lowing up 
that daring move I moved a dra- 
gon egg to the hatchery (yes, I 
wanted an army), After purchas- 
ing some noxious chemicals from 
a travelling salesman I entered the 
alchemy room and found the 
essential spell book. 

Spell ingredients fall into two 
main categories; directors and 
affecters. A director determines 
the target and the atfecter decides 
the affect. All the ingredients per- 
form different tasks. The whole

Alas, poor Fetsor. 



process is extremely complicated, 
with different applications, heal- 
ng, condensing and several 
tables in the manual which need 
to be chewed over. 

Several backfires later and 
came up] witfi a potion designed to 
change my dragon into a slee+! 
killing machine. And transformed 
it was, super strong and super lit. 
Unfortunately I also managed to 
completely erase what intelli- 
gence he had, so the next half 
hour was spent working on a spell 
thai would let him remember his 
ABC 

11 look three months for my new 
dragon to hatch, and respectfully I 
named him Mike after the Ed and, 
thanks to the wonders of alchemy, 
I mutated him into a weedy shrimp

and dragons. In fact my perform- 
ance was so poo r I was told it was 
game over lime. There you go, I 
was never cut out lor this overlord 
lark, 

Dragons Bwtfi is a complex 
game. Throughout the game nil 
the villages and towns are con- 
stantly at war with each other, 
while you conquer a few yourself. 
As some get wiped out, new 
villages appear, so the map is 
permanently changing. Another 
well constructed feature is the 
spells. An almost infinite combina- 
tion are made available to you, 
and the ability to lest them out on 
villages helps no end. 

Predominantly an k;on control- 
led strategy, the game has a 



feature which allows you to mas- 
ter your dragons when you go on 
raids This opens out lo a Dragon 
Spirit style arcade game, which I 
must say is pretty lasiy. Several 
tunes and weird effects maich the 
excellent graphics, giving a great 
overall feel and depth to the 
game. 

Dragons Braaih is excellent, 
perfect for people who enjoy no- 
thing more than indulging m a spot 
of casual genocide.

ROTOR 



AMIGA 



SCREEN 
SCENE 







n, the future the 
welfare stale is a 
thing of the past, 
wilh unemploy- 
ment running low 
and luxury lifestyles thin on the 
ground Two social classes exist: 
the workers and the Roto- Raiders. 

The job of the Roto- Raiders is 
to maintain an infiltration force 
behind enemy lines and make use 
of enemy resources. All of which 
is a pretty long-winded excuse for 
playing Thrust 

As a trainee you must prove 
your ability in the manoeuvre and 
combat simulators. Once you 
have done this you will be given a 
password to allow you to enter the 
batlle section. Each battle class 
consists of three levels of varying 
size and you must earn enough 
prestige units before being 
allowed into the next battle class. 
You earn units by shooting enemy 
emplacements and containers. 
Some containers yield pearls 
which can be used to buy add-ons 
for your ship. 

If, like me, you're one of those 
people who loved Thrust on the 64 
then Rotor undoubtedly has some 
appeal — though its hardly the 
first clone to appear for the Amiga. 

An excellent control system (en- 
tifely on the joystick) allows the 
player to get straight into the 
game. 

More of the games features are 
revealed as you progress prevent- 
ing the game from becoming bor- 
ing, Tie the computer down be-

cause the game has a high frus- 
tration factor, when you've built up 
a high score one crash can lose 
the lot. 

The graphics are fairly simple 
but ideal for their purposes, Each 
battle class has different back- 
drops (except for enemies) which 
helps to keep things interesting. 



All the shoot-em-up sounds you 
might expect are present in more 
than ample supply. Rotor also 
includes a veritable symphony of 
nice music. 

Rotor is well presented, and has 
a high level, of addictiveness. It 
doesn't offer muoh that's new, but 
I have a weakness for tbis kind of 



game. You should get a copy if 
you share my feelings.

A rsttwr unusual order 




YPHOON 
HOMPSON 




Typnoon Thompson features 
several short sequences outlining 
the p o: of the game, as well as a 
dazzling amount of different 
movements executed by the Jet- 
Sled and its pilot. Sonne bleating 
sound effects are mingled wMh 
some that are slightly more 
pleasam. My only worry concerns 
the lasi ability of the game. I'd 
almost completed the third level 
after only a couple of hours, and I 
have a sneaky suspicion that 
there are only five in total. 

Life jackets aside. Typhoon 

Thompson is a great nttle game 

that deserves ail the credit it gets. 

Mark Patterson 



his acute, funny, 

sickemrgly 
addictive, all 
round nice 
game. Winner of 
many accolades, the ST version 
couldn't put a fool wrong. 
Typhoon Thompson and the Ami- 
ga ^ ill surely go the same way. 

The opening sequence shows 
Thompson being dumped uncere- 
moniously out of a space craft and 
onlo a Jet- Sled. His mission is to 
find a shipwrecked child. From out 
of nowhere two mysterious spirit 
guardians appear, give him a 
mysterious power and a few 
orders then vanish. 

The obiect of the game is lo 
collect four items from the Sprite 
Guardians who will then help you 
to recover the lost child. But first 
you have to find a dagger which is 
stored inside the white treasury 
dome. Naturally there's a catch. 




Domark

Price: £19.99

Each of the surrounding islands 
contains Sea Sprites and their 
outlandish craft. Before the dag- 
ger can be removed from the 
dome these naslies need to be 
dealt with. Removing the Sphtes 
from the islands is easy enough, 
just let loose a laser salvo to 
shake them up. When their craft 
start buzzing around Ms just a 
matter of picking them off. But 
that's nol quite the end of it. 

Once a Sprite's ship's been 
obliterated the creatures lie bob- 
bing around in the ocean. Then 
it's just a matter cf gathering the 



Sprites up into a sack before they 
regain consciousness. After each 
one has been collected a rather 
annoyed little creature emerges 
from the treasury dome, jumps 
around, goes back inside and 
gives up the object he's guarding. 
Proably the most instantly irri- 
taling thing about Typhoon 
Thompson is the way the Jel-Sled 
is controlled. Mouse only, it re- 
quires a combination of left-right 
jabs, buttons and lots of concen- 
tration. Ii's one oi those skills 
which develop slowly, but il will 
take a long time to master it.

enemy lines. Ocean's game has a 
cast of imaginary characters and a 
plot about as convincing as a 
Police Academy film, 

Resources are limited, You 
have a dozen or so grenades, a 
couple of hundred rounds of 
ammo, and hardly any food. To 
make things worse you need to 
guide ihe platoon through fifty- 
eight miles off Vielcong territory in 
order to reach a friendly base. 
Your course is plotted on a rather 
simple map. A detailed report on 
the surrounding area can be 
gamed by sending out a scout, 



although he risks bumping into 
Vietcong patrols. 

Inevitably you and your merry 
men come under fire, causing the 
disk drive to whirr as it loads in an 
arcade sequence. You find your- 
self hidden behind a wall avoiding 
a hail of bullets, and every now 
and then, should you feel the need 
to, you pop up, fire off a few shots 
or lob a grenade or two then sink 
back under cover again. 

The Gls in this game didnl 
have many scruples. When sup- 
plies are running short it pays to 
raid a village, Some are friendly 



LOST 



but if you you are not sure interro- 
gate its chief. You can be nice or 
you can be nasty, just talk, or hit 
the bloke hard. If you're not get- 
ling anywhere you can execute a 
villager. If you're in a really nasty 
mood, you can lay waste to the 
village. This highly iastless option 
is like something from 'Apocaly- 
pse Now" — but il hardly does 
wonders for your men's morale. 

Although it jumps on the Cinem- 
aware bandwagon. Lost Patrol 
misses the mark. As a compen- 
dium of sub games it works OK, 
but as a Vfelnatn war game it's 
hardly an education. 

All the individual sections are 
good fun to play. The graphics are 
tidy but unfortunately aren't as 
impressive as the early demos led 
us 10 believe. A weak sounding, 
but catchy, sernMechno tune 
plays throughout, only interrupted 
by bursts of gunfire and the occa- 
sional scream. 



SCREEN 
SCENE 



Lost Patrol is noi what I had 
originally expected. Instead of a 
really absorbing, well plotted 
strategy it's turned just a siring of 
arcade sequences. Despite this 
disappointment Lost Patrol is a 
pretty good excuse for a romp 
through the Vietnamese country- 
side, and it does provide some 
genuine entertainment.

Rooftop pursuits. 




his Is the siory of 

one man's fight 
against a cold 
and unfriendly 
civilisation. All 
(races of modern social etiquette 
and mental evolution have dis- 
appeared. The modern steel and 
cement jungles of the first world 
have become home to a barbaric 
and violent Dreed of street gangs 
and thugs. This is the world after a 
nuclear war, a world where no 
man is safe from his own brother. 
Human beings are particularly 
versatile creatures, able to adapt 
easily to their chosen environ- 
ment. All except on a particular 
human, Jonathan Rogers, known 
to his friends as Jungle Rodgers. 
And who can blame him? 

Jonathan doesn't want to stay 
in downtown Manhattan, since it's 
one of the worsl hit cities after the 
war His only escape route is via a 
launch pad way off to the right of 
Ihe screen, where he can escape 
to the outer colonies and be free 
from all the hassle of existing in an 
average computer beat 1 em up. 

01 course, to get to this nuclear 
free haven — a sort of Hackney- 
on-the-moon — he has to fight his 
way through Ihe obligatory billions 
of screens scrolling from left to 
right, punching and kicking every 
living thing that comes into view. 
Jus! for a change, there are more

things to kill than the usual collec- 
tion of muscle- bound skinheads 
with chain saws. There's the odd 
rabid dog or two racing around, 
not to mention the thousands of 
rats and weasels that race under- 
foot. True variety, 

This sort of game has been 
done to death, and Ihe real prob- 
lem is that it just isn't getting any 
better. After seeing a dozen or so 
of these things, you begin to 
wonder if the term 'practice makes 
perfect" actually means anything. 
Only in a perfect world, it seems. 

Gameplay is always an impor- 
tant factor, but maybe not to the 



programmers of this little baby. 

Ok, so using a key on the 
keyboard as a second fire button 
isn't unheard of, but it is usually 
the space bar, not something as 
fiddly to hit as the left Amiga key. 
It's this process of having lo lei go 
of the fire button and swinging 
wildly at the keyboard whilst trying 
to hold the joystick in a set posi- 
tion that really finishes off After the 
War. That plus the fact that the 
controls are amazingly unrespon- 
sive anyway. Come on. this la 
supposed to be an action game I 
Visually this is very reminiscent 
of Manhattan Dealers. Large 



sprites are all very well, but 
animation is also a major part of 
making a game look good. Two 
frame animation does nol give I his 
game an arcade quality feel, and 
as for the short, almost violently 
abrupt spot effects, well, they 
don't really add any aural charac- 
ter to the game. In fact, After ihe 
W&r doesn't have any character.

■l&S^ufc'H&iS-'*'^'" 



Action ware 
Price: £24.95 



Hiven the colour 
and variety 
found in circus 
acts its hardly 
surprising their 
appeal as games is so strong, 
Sideshow is Actionware's latest 
release for the Amiga. All the run 
or the Tair is guaranteed as you 
wander round eight different acts 
and into the food stand. 

Buy your tickets and choose 
your booth, though to slart with 
you only have enough to play at 



Balloons or Bails. In the former 
you must find a hidden pattern 
behind the balloons, whilst the 
latter has you shooting green 
balls. If you do weM in these you 
win enough tickets to visit the 
other sideshows which include 
knite throwing, a strength tester, a 
shooting range, a very strange 
clock shoot game, a dunk tank 
and Ihe hajnted hill. 

All the games are played using 
either a mouse or a light gun and 
all require you to shoot at some- 



thing. A raally nice if fussy feature 
is that you can digitise a face and 
give it to the character in the dunk 
tank. Every game is very playable, 
mainly because of the presenta- 
tion and its simplicity, but be 
warned, they can quickly become 
boring. 

While all this is going on you get 
peckish and after a bit you have to 
visit the food stand. This is an 
annoying and frustrating phase of 
Skf&how that must be endured 
after playing a few booths. 

Sideshow is graphically excel- 
lent. Large, well defined charac- 
ters, excellent animation and pre- 
sentation exist in all games. Col- 
our is used to good effect and a 
huge variety ot graphics heSp lo 
keep the player interested; 

The sound is of similar quality 
with plenty of music and digitised 
effects to tingle your lugs with 

Actionware have obviously put 
a lot of work into Sideshow but it is 
let down by the simplicity of the 
games and the pointless visits to 
the food stand.

guard, who has to venture out on 
missions over a period of time, 
with the ultimate aim of stopping a 
glartl alien invasion upon our solar 




system. All the missions are linked 
by a main plot, with lots of lime 
subplots, and one thing you must 
always remember is that your 
actions on the mission you are 
currently undertaking could have 
serious repercussions in the later 
stages 

Flying the ship is a lesson In 
astrophysics in itself. In space 
there Is no gravity and no friction, 
so flying the craft is a little like 
playing Thrust except without any 
gravity and In three dimensions. 
You only slow down or stop if you 
make yourself slow or stop. Once 
you've started travelling in a cer- 
tain direction and speed* you keep 
to those figures until you change 
them. I won't II e p this method or 
-control Is very difficult Indeed, and 
takes a lot of practice to get used 
to, but this doesn't even begin to 
harm the payability. Rememer 
Virus? 

The autopilots make life a bit 
easier for you. There are ten of 

them, each with a specific mun- 



dane function, from driving the 
■hip very slowly to a designated 
point through to Just pointing the 
ship in the right direction. Dull but 
necessary tasks. Everything in the 
game follows this turn and thrust 
rule, and the attention to detail is 
amazing, even something as 
small as a missile rotates and 
guns Its little engines to change 
course. How many sleepless 
nights went into this little project I 
wonder? 

However many it was, it paid 
off, just on the graphics. The 
game Is nothing short of visually 
stunning, 11 Isn't sprite based and 
it Isn't solid vector based (I would 
use the term filled vector' but It 
seems to really annoy Glyn Wil- 
liams, the programmer). Basically 
sprites are used where sprites 
look better than vectors and vice 
versa. All the ships are vector 
based so that they con move 
quickly and look good. Things like 
explosions and stars, however, 
don't really move that much, so 



sprites are used because, In the 
two instances here, they look bet- 
ter. Speaking of the starfield. un- 
like all other games I could men- 
tion, this starfleld doesn't move at 
aJI. and why should It? After all, 
you are travelling negligible dis- 
tances across the solar system. 
To give some feeling of movement 
to the game you can switch on 
movement dots 1 which act like the 
starfiek) In Elite, giving you some 
kind of clue aa to which direction 
you're moving in. 

Warh&ad also excels In the 
Important payability category. 
There's at least thirty-nine mis- 
sions, stacks of different outcom- 
es, and many different ways of 
going about your tasks. The cast 
of characters, both bad and good, 
are topped off by a guy called the 
Beserker, who pops up through- 
out to give you as much grief as 
possible. 

Fantastic is probably the best 
word to sum up Warhead. Mainly 
because it I*.

doesn't it? Pretty 
Much like the

like it too. . . ^^^Ifjt^^m 
Conqueror comes from the 
same team which produced Virus 
and that all-time classic, Eats. 
Even so, my first impressions 
weren t too good. Uncomplicated 
and overly user-friendly. I thought 
but then I saw the impressive 
rotating tank on the option screen, 
As in real lite, tanks aren't easy 
to control, Those in Gomjuerorare 



no exception, requiring two pairs 
of hands or a computer controlled 
team mate. Use either two joys- 
ticks to control the right and left 
tracks, with the computer as your 
gunner, or drive the tank with one 
joystick with an automatic gunner, 
or vice versa. 

Conqueror features three sub- 
games: Arcade, Attrition and 
Strategy. Arcade is just a matter of 
racing round the landscape blow- 
ing away everything which has 
tracks- Attrition has you in com- 
mand of a platoon of five tanks, 
one under your direct command, 




t he res t taking orders, as you fight 
J Bung enemy force, ' 

bgy is the most compli- 
m Rame. You and your com- 
puter opponent are allocated 3000 
points to spend on tanks, then 
they're placed on the battle field 
The more enemy tanks you des- 
troy the more points you earn, so if 
you're doing waH you can virtually 
build a private army. Later on you 
get to use spotter planes and call 
in artillery fire to help slow the 
enemy down. 

The battlefield is made up of a

senting a fast, colourful land- 
scape, containing roads, rivers, 
houses and trees — and that's not 
forgetting enemy tanks. Occasion- 
al billows of smoke erupt from 
ruined buildings and burnt -out 
tanks whfch help to add realism. 

The enemy tanks have two 
favourite strategies: they sneak up 
to you, let off a sly shot and run 
away, or perch on top of a hill and 
catch you unawares as you roil 
past. At times you have to run 
away fast — especially when 
faced by a tank which has been 
built like the side of a house. And 
the computer uses faster tanks. 

There are three countries in- 
volved: Germany, Russia and 
America. The setting is around 
1944 r so the tanks aren't too 
modern, though the fen that fea- 
ture are certainly individual. I 
opted for commanding a German 
King Tiger. It's big and powerfully 
armed. 

Conqueror is a beautiful game 
with nicely-coloured graphics and 
nicely detailed sprites. The three 
games give you scope — from 
showing off to mounting a well- 
thought out campaign. Ultimately 
the computer always comes back 
harder, but H's nice to hit it lor six 
in the early slags, 

A perfect romp around Europe. 
Locked up in twenty tons of steel 
you're impervious to the cuisine, 
and most of the opposition. De- 
finitely a tanking success.

co-stars from the cartoon show

break from the small screen lo

The game follows one of Ihe 
favoured Peanuts plols; Linus

of wigging out completely, In the

ing everybody else, such as filling 
Lucys paddling pool, then droph

struct! ve 4 but fun all the same. 

Snoopy continues In the same 
vein as The Edges Garfield 
games, with some very neat car- 
loon style graphics. The major 
difference is in the payability. 
Snoopy is far easier to get into, 
Ihough it's hardly the fastest game 
to have surfaced. Snoopy is a 



slow game, though it is meant lo 
be taken at a leisurely pace. 

Though not directed lowards 
youngsters, I his is the area where 
it will find mosi of its fans. Definite- 
ly noi for lager louts or those who

cover in CU7 Things arc different 
now. There's fewer adventures but 
they are far bigger and more 
expensive, The answer to your 
question in a question: how can 
more gameH be reviewed than are 
released? And to be fair, you do get 
two reviews each time there are two 
games to cover. 

* Can we sec a few more 64 
adventures reviewed in The Valley in 
19907 

M. Ferris? 

Gorton* Manchester 

Campbell's Comment: Definitely not. 
Name a major adventure that was 
released for ihe 64 and not for the 
Amiga during '84) ? If there is a 
choice of both machines, naturally 
the most advanced version, Amiga p 
is the one covered, with details of 
availability of other version s, as in 
Scapeghnst, for example, Talking of 
availabQily . . . 

+ I very much enjoy reading your 
magazine, and find it very informative 
apart from one thing! I wish that when 
you publish hinLs/nhics for games 
you'd say which computer the game is 
played on r and whether only on disk or 
also cassette. Sometimes [ read the 
clues and think — that sounds like a 
good game and I'd like to buy it. But 
even if I've seen a review in the past 1 
can never remember if it was 
appropriate for my computer or not! 
Wonne Cooper 
Harold Wood, Essex, 

Campbell's Comment: Well, what do 
you chink. Valley readers? Is thin a 
good idea you'd like to see put into 
practice? Or is the answer to buy 
both a 64 with drive and an Amiga, 
and just go out and buy the game 
anyway ?

we're searching for other adventure

The price he will have to pay 
is a trip to Huholubia, a planet

This adventure system is not

added touch ift that If the

minutes , the screen starts 
drawing pretty patterns until 
the mouse is again clicked, 
when the screen refreshes and 
play resumes. 

The text returned as a result 
of the player's commands re* 
suits in a story-like narration, 
and the staiy can end fairly 
abruptly p albeit happily, if the 
'wrong" commands are en- 
tered. But there are real puz- 
zles too, of a fairly straightfor- 
ward nature. As In the Deja W 
type games j however p these 
show the adventure system as 
being frustrating^ restrictive 
in allowing Imaginative 
attempts at solution. 

.All in all, a pushover for the 
hardened advent urer, but 
Ideal for the beginner or 
someone who fancies an easy 
ride for a change. Hopefully 
here Is an offering that will 
recruit more enthusiasts to

THE LAST NINJA (N5) 

To get post the Dragon at the 
ena of level one, you must 
stand on the left (tar), side of 
the path just at the beginning 

of the Dragon's rocky fair. 
Throw a smoke bomb arid if 
you are on target the Dragon 
will fall asleep. Now you can 
walk past him without being 
killed.

WASTELAND (M14) 

Nicholas wonts to chat with the 
computer- terminal in Base 
Cochise, Although it isn't 
necessary you may ask him 
about Fi nster or the Base. 

You don't need to get over 
the roiling but you must make a 
hole at the western a r eastern 
part in the some level. Imagine 
the level as a cross and you 
should know what I mean. 

Slip through the neglect and 
you will meet a challenge that 
lasts another month, 

If you should succeed and if 
you are fast enough you could 
cross the then broken nailing 
and look at the moss of 
computers. 

Good luck!

HOW TO POKE 



This is a more detailed de- 
scription (for those people 
who have only recently got 
ah Amiga computer} about 
how to enter the cheats for 
games which are printed in 
this magazine. 
STEP I 

Switch on your Amiga and 
wait for the Work Bench 
hctnd to be displayed, 

If you have on Amiga 
T0O0 then insert your Kick- 
start disk first as described in 
your manual to get to the 
above stage. 
STEP 2 

Get out your Workbench disk 
and insert it into drive 0. After 
a while this will finish Joading 
and you vrifl be presented 
with some icons and a poin- 
ter which is controlled by the 
mouse. Eject vour Work- 
bench dw ana insert your 
EXTRAS [or something simi- 
lar] under it. Grab your 
mouse ond position the poin- 
ter over the icon and double 
click the left burton. If that 
worked correctly then you 
will see a window with more 
icons appearing in ft. Now 
double dick on the icon 
which says AmigaBASlC 
under it 
STEP 3 

You ore now in AmigaBASlC 
and you are ready to type in 
the cheat program which you 
like. The program must be 
typed in to the right hand 



window. To move between 
the windows just position 
your mouse in the window 
that you want ond press the 
left button once. 

STEP 4 

Now that you have finished 
typing in the program in the 
right window you need to 
save it. To do this move the 
pointer to left window and 
click left button once and 
type: SAVE "filenome". 

Where filename is the 
name you want the cheat to 
be coifed on the disk. Now 
before you press return eject 
the extras disk and insert the 
formatted disk which you ore 
to save the cheat on then 
press return. During the save 
the computer might ask to 
have certain other disks to be 
inserted so [ust follow the on 
screen prompts. 

STEPS 

Finally to run the program, in 
the left window type: RUN 
(followed by pressing the re- 
turn key). 

The cheat should now 
work If you get any error 
messages it probably means 
that you have mode o slight 
error when you entered me 
program. Just check through 
the program and if you find a 
mistake don t forget to resave 
the program again as de- 
scribed above,

L_ 



O 



uccessat being A 
boxing manager is 
nd just ii CAse of 
getting a well ranked 
boxer. You've got to be a 
sensitive trainer, picking 
up on a boxer's bad points* 
and covering them by 
improving on his 
strengths, The boxing 
boards must be happy with 
your decisions, and more 
importantly your boxer 
must be happy. After all. 
there's no point in a boxer 
who does well all year then 
turns round, accuses you 
of underpaying, then 
leaves the cam p. 

Your boxer's contract is 
a simple affair, as you can 
offer them anything at all in 
the early stages and they'll 
accept- However, that 
doesn't mean that they're 
gullible. They team fast. So 
much so that within a year 
they're holding the reins 
when it comes to renewing 
their contract- Filling in the 
second year contract is 
easy as long as you follow 
these two basic rules: 
don't undercut, or the 
boxer will walk out, and 
don't go too high* else you 
might find it impossible to 
offer better terms next 
year. 

Getting to the top is easy 
as pie as long as you are 
prepared to be patient- 



pi acts ahead of you is fine, 
though I usually find seven 
or eight to be the perfect 
ran^e. Make sure you 
choose boxers you can 
beat, the easier the better. 
Check the boxer* a record 
in your Filofax and mate h 
the number of knockouts 
against the number of 
wins, A lot of knockouts 
means that you have to try 
to beat him on points, and a 
low number of knockouts 
shows he*s a distance 
tighter, so you should go 
tortheKOearty, 

Use your two scouts to 
check out a boxer's 
statistics, A sup^r strong 
boxer with a keen eye and 
an accurate left hook might 
drop most boxers inside of 
five rounds, but add a glass 
jaw to this fearsome 
adversary and the chances 
are he won't last three 
himself. 

You've booked your 
fight, your boxer is raring 
to go, and you know your 
opponent. It's time to fight, 
and it's the tactics you 
choose when fighting that 
decide whether you stand a 
chance or not. 

If you are fighting a 
boner with low stamina, or 
indeed a very fast boxer, 
going in aggressively with 
a constant stream of body 
and head punches is ^^M 



out, thereby slowing him 
down, ff your boxer has the 
stamina and strength to 
manage it, then keep this 
tactic up, and before you 
know it. y^| 
your oppolnt cuts easily, 
it's alw^> s worth going for 
the hrad jnd occasionally 
fighting dirty* resulting in a 
few clashes of heads. That 
way. you're likely to cut 
him and have the ref stop 
the fight. Obviously the 
combination of tactics tfl 
vfrork the best are down to 
each individual boxer, but 
the general rule seems to 
be that fast weak boxers 
tend to jab and move, 
whilst other, slower yet 
powerful fighters go for 
the KO constantly, thereby 
piling on the pressure from 
the word go, 

In between rounds, the 
things you have to worry 
about most are, in order of 
priority, stamina* 
alertness, cuts and 
bruises. Unless of course 
any of them is disastrously 
low. in which case they 
require urgent attention. 

There is a fot more to 
WCBM, but there is 
nothing I could write that 
would .ippiy to everybody, 
becausjgH 

dt He rent. Much as I would 
like to come up with some 
magic formula there isn't 
*ighting.

EYE OF HOKUS 



CHEAT MODE 
In the credits section of the 
game type 'SPAM' and the 
game will start. You will now 
have infinite lives and you will 
not need colour-coded keys to 
be able to use the locked lifts 
— this means tht you can easi- 
ly access most Of the game. If 
you want to meet Set* he is 
through the blue-locked lift. 

HINTS 'N' TIPS 
The first thins y°*i will need is 
a map. This is obtained from 
the Amulet of the Steps. As 
you start in the burial cham- 
ber, take the lift on the left 
side of the chamber and go up 
the Wt to the next chamber. 
Now go left until you reach 
another lift and go down tor 
two chambers in this. The 
Amulet of the Steps is to the 
right of this chamber but be 
careful, there are a lot of hid- 
den surprises 

Each Amulet is described In 
the Horus players guide hut 
each description Is very 
vague. Here is a list telling you 
what each one really does. 

THE HEART — if you are car* 
lying a piece of body and you 
use this amulet, Isis will 
appear and take the piece of 
body hack to the burial cham- 
ber for you, 

THE SAM — Anubis will be 
summoned and will give you 
an extra amulet (randomly 



selected). 

THE BUCKLE — an extra 
weapon — this wiH give you a 
water jet weapon. Found in 
the Yellow Area Map, 
THE SCARAB — another 
weapon — this will give you 
the ability to fire dung balls. 
Found in the Green Area Map. 
THE EYE OF HORUS — the 
most powerful weapon in the 
game. This will give you a very 
strong laser that will slice 
through enemies with great 
ease, Found in the Blue Area, 
but beware, the evil Set pro- 
tects ft* 

THE SOUL — a multiple 
weapon, up to two available — 
a small hawk will fly above you 
and give you extra firepower. 
It another Soul is collected 
and used then yet another 
multiple hawk wiM fly below 
you . By using the Eye of Horus 
with two Soul amulets, the 
players firepower becomes 
awesome — even Set wii have 
a hand time standing up to you ! 



THE TET — when you have 
returned all ot Osiris'* body 
pieces to the burial chamber, 
you should return there and 
use the Tet Amulet. A fanfare 
will sound and all the pieces 
will pull together to show you 
the great king. You are now 
able to kill Set (who will be 
cowering in the Blue Area 
map) and if you succeed in this 
then you will win the game. 



RED AREA 
MAP 



THE PILLOW — * smart bomb 
— will last permanently and 
will destroy everything in the 
chamber that you are standing 
in when you use it. 
THE TWO FINGERS — a smart 
bomb — will likewise devas- 
tate everything that lurks 
around you. 

THE SHEN — a smart bomb — 
wll destroy new enemies.

THE VULTURE - a smart 

bomb — yet something else 
which will obliterate all of your 
opposition, but beware, it will 
only work in the Red area map. 
THE COLLAR OF GOLD — you 
will be invincible tor about 3d 
seconds with this amulet. 
THE PAPYRUS SCEPTRE — a 
red herring — it you have a 
powerful weapon, this will turn 
them back into the papyrus 
darts which you started the 
game with. 

THE LADDER — a teleport — 
this will always return you to 
the burial chamber. There are 
three of these in the game and 
they can be very useful if you 
use them at the right time — 
particularly when things get 
tough in the Blue Area. 
THE NEFER - if you have a 
map then you will be able to 
determine Set's location, 
THE MEN AT — boosts your 
strength to maximum. 
THE STEPS — when used you 
get a self- mapping facility. A 
map icon will appear to the 
far-right of the icon display. 
Click on this to see the map. 
THE FROG — an extra life.

SECTION ONE 

Keep your head and use 
your noddle. 

Much of what's required 
is only common sense, but 
you mightn't have realised 
that if you swim over the 
mermaid you will get an 
extra life. Shoot the metal 
pods to gain equipment but 
AVOID the canisters — 
they're full of hideous, 
poisonous waste. 

If you do get caught in 
this filthy muck use the 
booster to move sharply. 
Strap the plasma mine to 
the anchor as it rises then 
move away from the ship 
and use the transmitter 
when you hear the warning 



avoiding the creature and 
continuing on your way. 

Basically this second 
section will have you 
shooting various nasties, 
avoiding the odd natural 
disaster or two and picking 
up objects. These include 
Garlic Gas (B), a box of 
Laser Knives (C), an Ion 
Emitter (D), a Kristal (E) 
and Dynamite (F). Remem- 
ber that its third time lucky

Ion Emitter may well be a

Konami 



Welt, It mmfl official, 
The logo is identical 
and I can't Imagine that 
a company aa reputable as 
Konami would dare to take the 
Hint's name In vain at least 
without shelling out a tidy turn 
tar the rights). But I still find It 
hard to believe that the two are 
very closely related given that 
the film first appeared four 
years ago, 

Ysee, Aliens 1 , the film, star- 
ring Sigourney Weaver, la a 
rather good, if slightly ovsc-the- 
top follow-up to 'Allen', A tens, 
the game, la Jual a thinly dis- 
guised rehash of the dreary old 
G/yzof-type shoot 'em ups. 

For one or two players, Aliens 
features three different types of 
shoot em up action. Pan one Is 
Standard hprlzontakscrolling 
blasting, Your onscreen hero 
carries a standard gun which ha 
uses In two fairly awkward posi- 
tions, upright at hip level and 
crouching. The aliens you face 
are pretty drab and anonymous, 
but they move quite swtftfy 
around the playing area. To 
help you counter them there are 
occasional weapon pods with 
an alternating array of weapons 
for you to choose — rockets, 
flares, 3 way fire and triple pow- 
er are a vs liable, and very useful 
they are too, 

After the inevitable show- 
down with the end-oM*vel 






boss, you find yourself compet- 
ing with a tar more formidable 
alien, this time in an up-the~ 
screen shoot out extremely re* 
miniscent of Shlnabi and, in 
particular, Gryzor. This b*ot> 
fires ectoplasm in salvoes at 
you as he shifts rapidly from 
side to side, and just whan you 
think you've got the b#tter of 
him, lie transmutes Into another 
foiffi which you have to try to 
destroy again. 

When you've finally fought 
this monster Into the ground, 
level three puts you In the driv- 
ing seat of some kind of iron- 



clad, driving through a tunnel 
full of aliens, a la Operation 
Thunderbolt, The Idea, once 
again, is to blast the upscreen 
aliens, this time to prevent them 
cHmtting over the coning tower 

Throughout, I'm afraid, the 
graphics are uniformly bland 
and drab, the controls are Irrrte- 
tlngiy unresponsive and the ac- 
tion, if that s the appropriate 
word, samey and dull. 

This really to a waste of time 
— apart from the game's patent 
lack of originality, It's actually 
also far below the standards 
one expects in 1990 coin-ops in 



the purely technical and cosme- 
tic areas. 

At farts are coming to devour 
your ten pees — resist them at 
all cost.

Taito 



resh from Japan comes 
another cute game, Natur- 
ally it's aimed to grab as 
many ten pees as possible with- 
out causing brain death. 



Pang seems like a strange 
mixture of Bubble Bobbie. 
Asteroids and Mario Bros. 
Naturally the plot concerns a 
sweet little creature doing 



pointless things in a rather 
sweet way In this case it means 
5 hooting big ha Noons, reducing 
them to smaller balloons, and 
shooting them again until no- 




thing remains. 

It it .ill sounds slightly point- 
less, it changes once you start 
to pay. The first level starts off 
with one big balloon, no fore- 
ground scenery. Initially your 
armoury is limited to a rather 
meek grappling hook, which 
can only be fired once 
onscreen. Its a relatively easy 
level as are four and live. 

At the start of each level the 
machine informs you on what 
you can and cant do, This took 
me back so much that for a 
moment I almost stopped look- 
ing at the cutsy pictures. And 
when a section s been com- 
pleted you gel a little graphic 
map of the world showing 
where your next destination is. 
If S nothing really more than an 
excuse for using pretty trave- 
logue shots. 

Later on, as platforms and 
ladders enter the fray the game 
lakes a different twist Bricks 
hang mysteriously in the air, 
causing the halls to bounce 
faster and make life even 
tougher. Then there s a hawk, 
who buzzes on to the screen to 
be shot and give you bonus 
points- A crab creature, which 
looks like a refugee from Bub- 
ble Bobble, skits around the 
floor frying to KG Pang. 

You'll need a bagful of tac- 
tics. The balloons are tricky and 
need to be shot at the right 
time, so when they burst you 
wont be dissed Dealing with 
the small balloons is an art in 
itself; they need to be lured to 
one side and then bounced off a 
grappling hook, 

In the best tradition of 
Japanese coin-ops there's a 
multitude of extras to be col- 
lected. A clock freezes time, a 
double grappling hook gives 
you twice the tire power, a gun 
gives you a faser and so on. 

In terms of sophistication. 
Pang seems five years old. The 
backdrops are patchy and the 
theme tune sounds as though 
its been ripped from The 
Munsters'. On the other h£nd r 
Pang is disgustingly addictive, 
fn a short space of time the 
juices were flowing, and the ten 
pees were gushing from my 
pocket. If you're going to check 
Out Pang get into the arcades 
earfy — chances are you're 
going to be there for a long 
time

INNERPRISE 










Jaleco 



| h d realty thought that the 
days of the meekly visual r 
vertically scrolling shoot "em 
up was numbered, y e t this 
game employs what has to be 
one of the most dated, over- 
used ideas around. T&sk Force 
Harrier should moat definitely 
been abandoned at the de- 
velopment stage. 

The Intro screens contain the 
usual mish mash of cliches and 
an extremely dull picture of 
what's supposed to be a Har- 



rier, plus a completely unreal is* 
ttc weapons pay load. 

Your first plane is armed with 
a twin shotgun and some utter- 
ly naff bombs. It's pretty hard to 
tell what you are firing though, 
In fact its hard to tell what 
youre flying, the graphics are 
so mi macule. The first wave of 
tiny nasties hardly improve the 
overall situation either. 

Lubering on the ground are 
some equally unimpressive 
tanks, who let off a salvo with- 



out causing too much damage. 
Then h at last, you get extra 
firepower, It comes drifting 
slowly down from the top of the 
screen, to be- collected to trans- 
form Into a couple of friendly 
helicopters. 

Several more power ups later 
and you get onto the screen. 
The end^of -level helicopter fol- 
lows. For all the fire power your 
plane carries, and for all the 
times I hit the copter, it didn't 
give up let alone explode Even- 




tually the helicopter seemed to 
become as bored as i was and 
switched Into reverse, gliding 
back up the screen with the 
grace of a brick. The level 
doesn't end there though, 
there's more power ups and 
more money and still no re- 
sults. 

The heavily foliated land- 
scape gradually gives way to 
blue-grey rocks, more planes 
and yet another en d-of -level 
nasty. This time its two }et 
fighters Once again they fail to 
blow up, causing you to cop out 
after five minutes of boring f >re 
button work. 

TFH owes much to the 
machines of the mid eighties. It 
tsrft just that the graphics are 
small they're poorly designed. 
The sound effects and music 
are lack-lustre too. A boring 
warbly tune tries herd to be 
adventurous and then is lost 
amongst a profusion of mind- 
less zaps and squeaks. 

God forbid, if this ever made 
it onto the Amiga there's every 
chance of rt looking, sounding 
and playing pretty much the 
same. It might well be a cheap 
licence to get hold of , but in the 
long run when it comes to re- 
views and sales it II be a costly 
mistake. 

A poor example of an arcade 
game. I can only hope that this 
isn't a true fortender of things 
to come.

Print options 



W Like many other people [ 
was given an Arnica for 
Christmas , and a bit later I 
decided to buy a printer, 1 
bought an LC10 Colour but 
when I hooted up workbench 
to set the printer lining 
Preferences 1 found thai only 
Custom and Generic were cm 
the list in ihe corner, I haven t 
saved it on one of these 
modes,! I don't know if that 
would cancel ihe others]. But 
if I had by mistake the 
Workbench master wouldn't 
just say those two names — 
would it? And 1 doni use my 
m as it ! r so please help me I 
Also can anyone copy and sell 
PD. — even the free P.D. 
disks off mags? 
J. Solomon, 
W. Mids< 

When Workbench vl*3 was 
issued, Commodore put all 
the printer drivers onto the 
EJfi'HAS disk since there 
were so many more of them 
than on previous disks . What 
yuu have to do is to copy the 
correct driverfs) front the 
EXTRAS disk onto the 
working copy of your 
Workbench disk. There is a 
program whit It allows you to 
do this, on the Workbench 
disk- Open the Workbench 
disk and then open the 
UTILITIES window. Now 
select the InstallPrinter' icon 
and the program will show 
the printer driver options. 
Select the one you require 
and it will he transferred to 
the Workbench disk (repeat 
fur more than one printer 
driver). You can now select 
the required printer upturn 
using Preferences in the 
normal way. 

As for PU disks, these, may 
normalfy he copiedfreety r 
but under no circumstances 
are you permitted to sell 



them. Some of the so-called 
Pll snfhvare is actually 
SHAHEWARE, where you an 
expected to pay a 
registration fee to the author 
ifytm use the program 
regularly. In return you often 
gel the latest version, an up- 
to-date manual and mayhe 
even some support. The free 
copying is permitted so thai 
many people can try the 
software, before, paying any 
money. Selling such 
software, other than for the 
cost of the disk itself is a 
hreach of copyright* If you 
read the initial screens of 
most of the PH programs 
they wilt ejeptain the ejeact 
conditions under which the 
programs may he copied 
iitui distributed. 



Dive at five 



9 At present I run a B4C . 
1541 drive and a Star LC 10 
mono printer hooked up with 
a Centronics interface, I use 
ibis system with the aid of 
Mini Office It to help run a 
diving club. Although very 
good in its price range the? 
system ts proving to be 
somewhat limited in its 
application. L am considering 
changing to an Amiga but 
need In know a few things 
first. 

Will the Amiga run my 
printer? Is the Amiga capable 
of displaying 6(1 characters 
per column and not 4U as the 
64 does? (It makes laying out 
very difficult). Will J be able to 
transfer my data on the dub 
across to the Amiga when I 
buy a new word processor 
package? And can you 
recommend a few packages 
that will give me slightly 
belter graphics, database and 
word processing than Mini 
Office H please, 

Lastly P from reading your 



mag 1 get the impression that 
there is more than one type 
of Amiga on the market 
: something to do with 
Kicks tan I if this Ls so P can you 
tell me which is ihe best and 
what the difference is, 
because I'm a bit thick in the 
computer department? 

L don't want to change to an 
Ainstradp because I r d also like 
to have a r games J machine 
having two teenagers who 
enjoy games . 
A. D. Smith, 
Walsall. 

First of all since the Star has 
a Cenironks input you will 
he able to use it with an 
Amiga merely by buying the 
correct cable. Secondly, the 
Amiga will display W) column 
text quite happily, but the 
limitation may be on the 
device you use to display the 
text. 

If you are using a TV, then 
be earned that not all TVs 
can display SO column text 
without a degree of 
distortion which makes it 
very tiring to read- It is fur 
this reason that there is an 
option in the Preferences 
program to change the BO 
column text when using a TV. 

4 monitor is the only 
guaranteed way of displaying 
clear text in mi column 
modc r hut some Tl x s are 
better than others t 
particulary if they have a 
composite or even an RGB 
input option- 
Transferring the data from 
Mini Office tt on the fit to the 
Amiga is going to he a 
problem * Ihtwe used to he it 
device called ACCESS-G4, 
which allowed you to 
connect CBM serial-IEEE 
devices, like the 1541 disk 
drh'e, to the Amiga* It cost 
around £G0 f but I'm not sure 
that it is still available. The 
other alter withe is to use a 
serial transfer through the 



HS2.12 port, but again there 
are problems as the 64 uses 
neither standard ASCII* nor 
a standard HSZ3Z port. ftven 
if you could transfer the 
dala t the compatibility will 
depend entirely an how the 
/lies were stored. If they were 
in an ASCII T nor a standard 
RS232 port. Even ifynu 
could transfer the data, the 
compatibility will depend 
entirely on how the files were 
stored. If they were in an 
ASCII format then it 
shouldn't be difficult to read 
them into another program* 

As for suitable software, 
my personal 

recommendation would be 
the 'Home Office' software 
pack which contains 
Kindwords 2*0', 'Infoflle 9 , 
'Majciplan* and Tageseiter 
as well as a clipart disk and a 
fonts disk. Excellent value at 
around E1G5 (about what 
j^ou'dpayfor the three main 
programs alone). Finally, 
there is only one version of 
the 450O on the market, 
fitted with Kickstart vl .3 (the 
operating system) and with 
Workbench i J A There is, 
however, a new version on 
the. way f with improved video 
chips and the latest version 
of the operating si stern, hut 
it isn't here yet and with 
Commodore you leartt not to 
hold your breath waiting? 



Baudem 

W In response to the query 
from B. U Patterson r the 
modem he has acquired is a 
British Telecom type. 

[tie modem type breaks 
down thus:- 1st digit (4) 
denotes a fourth general ion 
modem; 2nd &. 3rd digits 
denote maximum hit rate 
(2400 bps}? 4th digit denotes 
transmission type . in this 
case half duplex two wire 
^transmission only in one 
direction at a time). 

To my knowledge this 
modem does not autodial 
(only more recent ones do 
ihisL This leaves the problem 
of initialising handshake nn 
reception of the answering 
tune. However trying 
different buttons should solve 
this (the data button is the

Loaded question 

W Can you please help me? 
There is something wrung 
with my computer. [ own an 
Amiga 500 and half the games 
I have iHiughl tin not load 
pjijperly- 'these include 



Ruhucup, Virus, Batman, SDt 
and Time Scarifier. All the 
games will load their title 
screens but go no further and 
crash. I have 1 r 3 Kikstart but 
so dues my friend and all me 
games luad pruperly nn his 
Amiga. Dnvnu think the disk- 
drive is not attigned properly 
or is there a chip I can 
replace? 

Also [ have seen both the 
colour and h/w Star LC-lG and 
am impressed by both 
especially (he colour prints of 
Photon Paint pictures. Can 
yuu tell me a) if the colour 
primer can prinl lest as fast 
as the b/w nne. b) Can I 
increase the sixeof the 
screen dump as the one E saw 
was about 5 inches wide? 

1 hope you can help me.

tt sounds very much as 

though you have a problem 
with your drive. You must 



not attempt to make any 

iv pairs yourself, particularly 
if the machine is still under 
warranty. Assuming it is, 
return it to your t tenter and 
ask him to have it repaired 
under warranty, since ait 
current machines should 
load the program you 
mention without any 
problem. 

As for the printers, hoth 
the STAH LC-iO and the W- 
lO Cohmr are identical 
printers as Jar as normal text 
printing is concerned* It is 
quite feasible to use a 
standard htack ribbon with 
the colour printer if you are 
only printing normal black 
text, as the black ribbon is 
much cheaper than the 
colour one. If you use the 
colour ribbon and use only 
the black then it won't be 
able to print all the shadings 
correctly later on. As for the 
screen dump f this is a 
function of the aspect ratio 
of the printer. Each line' of 



print is made up of nine dots 
vertically* The dump 
program must adjust the 
width so that the printout 
has the same aspect ratio as 
the screen, it is not therefore 
possible to increase the 
width of the screen dump 
using the normal print 
rtmtine in the graphics 
programs. 



Out of work 

W After buying an Amiga 1 
have found a problem with 

saving' on it. 

When J type something into 
the lisl window and run iti it 
works but when I try to save 
on it the message 

WORKBENCH 1.3 is write 
protected' appears then 
when 1 enter a blank 
formatted disk the message. 

Please enier Workbench 
1,3' appears. Please could you 
help rue with my 
programming as I'm afraid 
there ts something wrung. 
B. Clark, 
Fraserburgh, 
Aberdeenshire. 

II I tut tins happened is that 
you are telling the computer 
to save the program on the 
current disk, which 
obviously is the disk you 
started with r Le. the 
Workbench disk, which has 
got the write protect tab 
open. II hen i nu put m 
another disk it is already too 
late hvrausv the computer 
knows the difference 
between the new disk and 
one you told it to save the 
program on. (hie option is to 
set up a new disk and copy 
across the basic workbench 
programs needed toavtrid 
keep swopping the disk, and 
then you can save to this 
disk without any problem. 
Alternatively x format a blank 
disk and give it a name fe.g* 
RASMU*H(M;Sh then when 
you save a program in 
future, use the full disk name, 
in the save command {e.g. 
BASIC.PHOGS: <fUename> I 
You will then be prompted to 
insert the appropriate disk 
before the program is saved. 
Finally, if you want to avoid 
the problems of constantly 
having to swop disks, it's 
worth forking out for a 
second drive if you can 
afford it. Then your 
Workbench or BASIC disk 
can stay in drive il and ail 
your programs and data 
disks can go in drive 1. Han 
can then specify DFli as the 
default drive for saving*

Wrong image 

tt Firstly I congratulate you 
an your magazine which is 
the only one worth buying 
here in Australia* Recently, 1 
have been doing a lot of 
thinking about the Amiga vs. 
Mac & IBM. I do not know 
about Holland, but in 
Australia the small amount of 
advertising points towards 
thn Amiga as an "all round 
computer' 1 line, As the Amiga 
is youngs it is a long way 
behind the t*C and Mac , in 
technical ways. 

Tlic promotion >\urk (mm 
CBM is especially weak. All 
around mcp 1 can see 
examples of ItiM clones 
flooding in to homes, Maes 
are also infiltrating more and 
more businesses i without a 
second glance at the Amiga. 1 
feel that the only reason that 
people buy Arnicas, is that 
they see the true potential of 
it. E have shown a couple of 
friends Mime of its 
capabilities. Guess what? 
Hiey are both getting Amigas 
at Christmas. 

1 feel that Commodore has 
tried to rush the Amiga's 
process of evolution. The 
Amiga can laugh at the PC 
with VGA in both lis art and 
games ability. In Australia ■ 
VGA is the latest trend. 
However, there is hardly 



anything that will run VGA 
apart from test screens* 

The way I see it is that COM 
has tried to challenge 
companies which have the 
name and the money to push 
away the Amiga. Even such 
basic machines as Nintendo 
and Sega are as popular as 
SDto, Its a pity for such a 
machine to have such an 
inadequate image * as it dm is 
have great potential. 

To conclude > could you 
please tell me what a "PC 
Engine r ' is. Sorry , but things 
arc a little slow m Australia* 
The only place I have heard of 
it is in your magazine . Is it a 
PC with superior graphics hut 
little else? 

KyncScdgman? 
Australia 

We agree with you art the 
amount of promotion given 
over to the Amiga, Even in 
Britain it's not enough. The 
PC Engine isn't actually 
anything to do with PC's, It's 
a Japanese games console 
capable of producing arcade 
qualify games. 



Mix up? 

9 After reading the 
Operation Thunderbolt and 
Bomber reviews in your 



January issue , I noticed that 
UT got a Superstar and 
Bomber got a Scrcenstaj\ Was 
this just a mistakep or Is there 
a genuine reason? 

Finally f could you try and 
review games a little 
'quicker'. What I mean is that 
on certain games you do not 
seem to review them until 
well after their release datej 
some not at all, An example is 
Gazasa's Super Soccer. 1 
happened to buy this (for the 
Amiga), thinking it was good! 
I nfoi tunatelyr I dunk that it's 
crapl 

Other than that though 1 1 
really like your magazine. 

Chris Somf?&t 
Kfcfll 



We admit iL Bomber should 
have been a Super Star, but 
something went amiss 
between the reviewer and the 
art department* Still the 
score speaks for itself. What 
planet are you on? We never 
reiiew games after they come 
out Thafs why some games 
don't get reviewed at all, 
because they're on the 
shelves and are simply old 
news* And you learnt your 
lessonfrom Super Soccer? if 
it's not reviewed h*s probably 
not worth buying*

A sad case of mankind's 
thirst for knowledge* 
Everybody screams for 
cheats and pokes and then 
whinges when they've 
completed their favourite 
game. Its your own fault.

us to do? Print a health

you may or may not have

sodish enough to print for the

There 1 was one sunny

W I recently watched on 
EBC1 1 the Q.E.D, Programme 
on computer addiction. I was 
horrified to find that 1 am * at 
the moment j playing on my 
computer as much as (if not 
more than) the so-called 
"addicts". The narrator 
showed the PC Show at Earls 
Court, with thousands of 
computer freaks swarming 
around games stalls , and 
playing cm arcade machines, 
i.e. Uperation Thunderbolt. 1 
saw that I had most of the 
games myself, and enjoyed 
playing them immensely (In 
fact, 1 cheered when I saw niv 
favourite games on prime- 
time T.V.111) I had previously 
regarded myself as an average 
leenagcr* as many of the lads 
t know play frequently on 
video games. 
Paut Hnyman,

Thousands ofCU readers 

play computer games as a 
large p&rt t hut only a part, of 
their lives, and the fact that 
this gives people many hours 
ofenjovment isn't a prtmlem t 

is it? 

Computer games 
shouldn*t be any more or 

less of a compulsion than 
any other problem. We 
ohiiously can '* comment on 
how you feel personalty, but 
we. did see the Q.E+D* 
Programme, To be honest, it 
owed a great deal more to 
cheap &un-styie 
sensationalism than to 
objective reporting. Many of 
the so-called £ addicts T which 
were interviewed (and that 
boiled down to a grand total 
of one) probably had greater 
problems with family and 
environment than with the 
playing of games* IT 
programme itself even 
hinted at that.
